business or is there bad blood between san jose and these neighboring cities? >> reporter: no, no bad blood at all, raj. these police chiefs across the area know what they're doing. san jose's assistant police chief takes issue with the word "disgruntled." but i spoke with several of her officers off-camera and they tell me disgruntled is probably an understatement. meanwhile, the police chief in redwood city says his door is always open for any officer who wants to leave san jose. he sits in the big chair now, but before being sworn in as chief in redwood city last year, junior was a decorated officer who climbed the ranks in san jose. >> san jose is a great department. >> reporter: which is why by the end of december, he will likely have hired 11 officers from san jose, men and women with enviable credentials. cops tired of the low morale and low pay at san jose p.d.
6:01 pm
>> imagine all that experience on a midnight shift when an officer from redwood city that might have five or six years on it, it's a win-win. >> reporter: but it's a huge loss for san jose. some of its finest, yet unhappy officers, are walking out the door. still, the assistant chief doesn't believe her officers are disgruntled. >> no, i don't believe that. i don't believe any of our officers are unhappy being san jose police officers or working for the city of san jose. i think they really love working for the city of san jose. i think they're making very personal decisions based on personal reasons, largely, financial. >> reporter: you don't feel guilty about that? your old job that those other officers are leaving and coming to you? >> you know, it's difficult. my heart's torn. >> reporter: and gammons insists the officers are calling him, not the other way around. >> there's no mistaking that. i've not picked up a phone and called san jose officers and said, i'm looking for new laterals. >> reporter: but he will pick up
6:02 pm
the phone if they call, knowing there's a cop on the other end with amazing experience and training. >> today, i'm serving the community of redwood city. i want to do everything i can to benefit this community as the communities in san jose were benefited at one time. >> reporter: here's some perspective. there are 12 police chiefs in california who once climbed the ranks here in san jose. hayward, daly city, san leandro to name a few. if you think they're not keeping an eye on what's happening here in san jose, you might want to think again. live in san jose, i'm damian trujillo, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, damian. the hunt is on for a man who police say is one of two suspects that went on a crime spree ultimately killing a young man and injuring an officer. tonight, the reward money has been increased. nbc bay area's kris sanchez has new details and joins us from the 7-eleven in san jose. that's where that crime spree turned deadly. >> reporter: hi, there.
6:03 pm
yes, the suspect in custody and the one still on the loose fired directly at that police officer as he sat in his car, a sitting duck, so to speak. he ducked under his dash just to make sure that he could survive the accident. that was after the suspects gunned down a young man here at the 7-eleven after trying to carjack him. a collection of things that remind rory parkpettiford's friends of him are collected near where he was killed, randomly, senselessly by two suspects on a violent crime spree on friday night in san jose. >> it just sucks. seeing this and having him just be gone. i can't call him to see what's good and just chill. i don't know. it's just really sad. >> reporter: steven mosley says his friend, parkpettiford, was good at music, full of life and helpful to his family. the suspects who allegedly killed him while trying to steal his car outside this 7-evan are ruthless.
6:04 pm
jonathan wilbanks is in custody arrested after the crime spree began. he and his accomplice robbed a little caesar's pizza, a jack in the box before ending up at the 7-eleven where the victim had stopped for snacks after picking up the car he'd saved up to buy. >> i see his friend crying hysterically and they pulled his body out of the car and tried to revive him. >> reporter: the suspects took off, but with police on their trail, at one point stopping to get out of the car and fire shots directly from the police officer's patrol car. >> you can see we're very lucky. had it not been for the o.c. canister, we would be talking a different thing here right now. >> reporter: now the race is on to get a dangerous suspect off the street. the police officers association and the mayor's office each ponying up 10,000 grand to get people talking about. >> talking about people that
6:05 pm
night not necessarily be willing to help us. >> reporter: as people have been dropping off mementos here at this memorial, the police officers association and the mayor each put up $10,000 to get people talking. the tips can be anonymous. the assistant police chief says the suspect who is in custody is cooperating somewhat with the investigation. perhaps that will change as he is scheduled to be in court on wednesday to face the charges against him. in san jose, kris sanchez, nbc bay area news. an odd sight now, on top of a public bus. this man in san jose managed to nearly shut down an entire neighborhood for about four hours today. around 10:15 this morning, the man walked up to a vta bus at the bus stop at first and keyes near 280 and 87. he told the driver he wanted to talk to police and then jumped on top of the bus. the 12 passengers inside were escorted off without incident. sheriff's deputies including those trained to work with mentally ill people tried to
6:06 pm
convince him to come down. the man was not armed and made no major demands except to ask to talk with his father. the stand-off shut down the intersections and slowed business to a near crawl. >> resources are being taken away right now that we have very little of, like the sheriff and the police department, to be sitting out here when there's other things that could be taken care of, people needing these resources. >> nearly four hours later, as you can see, he did come down off of that bus. they're not releasing his name. they took him to a medical care facility for evaluation and are still deciding whether he will be arrested on any charges. pg&e is offering a $10,000 reward for information that help police crack a brazen kidnapping. two men kidnapped and carjacked this woman as she left work on november 7th. these are surveillance photos. it's one of the suspects. the 57-year-old woman was tied up, blindfolded and forced to withdraw money at an east bay

atm. ultimately, he was driven to an isolated area in the oakland hills where they let her go. the man whose suspicious-looking watch triggered a bomb scare at the oakland airport will not face charges. geoffrey mcgann was stopped by security after a federal agent saw what he believed was a suspicious device. mcgann's attorney says it's all just a big understanding. he said his client is an artist and known to be eccentric. prosecutors declined to file any charges. a surprising crime at one of the bay area's most scenic colleges. two students robbed at gunpoint. it happened about 9:00 this morning. campus police say two students were stopped by a man with a gun and robbed of their backpacks. >> it's very rare, in my history here, in my 16 years here, never
6:08 pm
seen an armed robbery situation like here. certainly not unusual on college campuses to have crimes. but in this area, for our campus, it is. >> campus police and sheriff's deputies searched the campus did you didn't find the suspect. the campus was knott locked down and no classrooms were disrupted. the repairs to the chevron refinery fire damaged in august could be delayed. at issue, what kind of metal pipes to use as a replacement. that issue came up today. chevron wants to replace a corroded carbon steel type with an alloy called chromium. but the contra costa times reports the federal safety board is challenging that choice because the american petroleum institute considers stainless steel more resistance to corrosion. the issue is expected to be addressed in tomorrow knight night's richmond city council
6:09 pm
meeting. some members of the california national guard call it a toxic culture. chief investigative reporter tony kovaleski is here with new information. the guard's leadership wants to look into the problems exposed in the report aired here and in los angeles. >> reporter: that is correct. our investigation uncovered a disturbing hidden culture inside the california guard where some members say sexual assault and racism at times go unchecked and leaders who make questionable decisions don't get disciplined. instead, they get promoted. we spoke with a master sergeant claiming she was sexually sa assaulted by another guard member. and this woman showed us a dollar bill with the "n" word on it saying it came from a member of the guard. and a veteran helicopter pilot questioned this risky joyride, under the golden gate by five national guard helicopters. over the past five months, nearly two dozen guard members spoke with us on and off camera
